Nominations closing for 2012 Magic Millions Yearling Sale series

Nominations for the three feature Magic Millions yearling sales in 2012 close next week.

The sales at the Gold Coast in January, Perth in February and Adelaide in March will give breeders a unique opportunity to market their yearlings to strong buying benches.

The Gold Coast Yearling Sale (11-19 January) is Magic Millions’ showcase event that has captured the imagination of not only the domestic, but also the international buying market.

This is Australia’s leading sale – 26 per cent more yearlings sold for prices between $100,000 and $300,000 as well as 20 per cent more individual buyers of these yearlings in 2011.

The Perth Yearling Sale (14-19 February) will take a fresh approach offering a revamped three tier select sale.  This high class event has produced not only Group One winners in Western Australia, but also in the eastern states and also abroad.

The Adelaide Yearling Sale (13-14 March) was the biggest growth sale of 2011 – the average rising 30% and the gross soaring 65% higher than the 2010 sale figures.

Magic Millions proved the number one source of Group 1 winners during the 2010/11 racing season and that trend looks set to continue with the ongoing selection of “type” yearlings.

The Golden Slipper is the world’s richest juvenile race and seven of the last nine winners sold at auction were sold by Magic Millions.

Magic Millions sold yearlings have further appeal to the marketplace being eligible to compete for $5.05 million as part of the “World’s Richest Sales Incentive Race Series.”

“Magic Millions is the only sales company in association with Aushorse to support an inward buyer scheme proven to maximise the return for breeders,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said.

“The leading trainers from around Australia buy the highest percentage of their horses at Magic Millions sales and Magic Millions sells more winners than any other sales company.

“For the upcoming sales series in 2012 our selection team will be working hard selecting the best racetrack prospects so the work of buyers looking for that next champion is a good deal easier.
